    I received an unsolicited text today from 770-966-6463 offering to sell me a machine I've been looking for for some time. He said he had that and another machine for sale, and provided pictures of the other machine (but not the one that I was looking for). His two pictures didn't match up (different text on the backglass) and he claimed it was due to differences in the weather. After taking two seconds online, I found where he stole the pictures from.

    His goal was to get me to Moneygram him some cash, which I never really entertained doing. Just wanted to see what he was going to say and identify if he was scamming, and it appears so. Once I confronted him with the pictures not being from the same machine, he stopped talking to me. Just a warning to anyone else who gets a message from this number; be careful, he likely doesn't have any machines at all and just wants to steal your money.

    Edit: added the full number

    I did report him to the local police as well, hopefully he didn't get anyone to fall for it already.

    These were the two images he tried to pass off as his other machine for sale. He was shocked when I said it's not the same machine and said it was different because of the weather.
